Woman found stabbed in the neck as cops hunt wanted man over her murder and warn public 'do not approach' him | The Sun
COPS are hunting a man after a woman was found dead in a house with stab wounds to her neck.
A murder probe is ongoing after Michelle Hanson, 47, was discovered inside an address on Brady Street, Sunderland, at 12.30pm on Saturday December 3.
Police have launched a manhunt for Alexander Carr, 32, who is wanted in relation to the death.
Today, Michelle's heartbroken family released an image of her.
Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Barr, of Northumbria Police, said: "This is absolutely devastating for Michelle's family and our thoughts remain with them at this awful time.
"We will offer them any support they need as they attempt to come to terms with the events of the last week. It has been understandably difficult for them and I would ask that their privacy is respected by everyone.

"Ever since this incident, we have been determined to locate those responsible and we will look to bring effective justice against anybody found to have been involved.
"A significant number of enquiries have been carried out in the area since Saturday and I would like to thank the victim’s family for their patience and cooperation, as well as the wider public who have supported our investigation."
Police say extensive searches are being carried out across the North East this week in a bid to locate Carr and bring him into custody.
Carr – who has links across Tyne & Wear as well as Northumberland – is thought to know he is wanted and is believed to be actively evading arrest.
